I am high on Solomon because I've been watching him last few years. Check Ukic's and Solomon's Euroleague stats. Solomon clearly has better stats. He also received more fouls and collected more rebounds than Ukic which tells me he is tougher. He upgraded his stats in the Top-16 of Euroleague compared to the qualifying rounds. That tells you about his heart. IMO he is also a much better defender than Ford, Ukic and Calderon.
I am not high on Ukic because he is a white and light version of Wade. He is a drilling type of player but he is not athletic and strong. He can't have much success in the NBA without learning how to assist like Nash.
I believe that the Raptors
will have the home court advantage in the first round of playoffs and they hopefully can win the East this year.
